Master Recipe: Pâte à Choux Dough
Andy Anderson !
Pâte à choux is a mixture of simple ingredients: flour, water, milk, eggs, but the proper technique is essential. And unlike other pastry dough, this one is pre-cooked on the stovetop.
When you take them out of the oven, they are so light, you're going to think that they'll float off the baking sheet.
So, you ready… Let’s get into the kitchen.
How to Make Master Recipe: Pâte à Choux Dough
- Chef’s Tip: Start stirring gently until the liquid and the flour are incorporated. Then get more vigorous and slap the dough against the sides of the pan. Eventually, the dough will pull away from the sides, and leave a film on the bottom of the pan. When that happens… you can stop stirring, and remove the pan from the heat.
